UN REPORT: "Nobody on this planet is going to be untouched by the impacts of climate change"

Global warming dials up our risks, UN report says
'Nobody on this planet is going to be untouched by the impacts of climate change,' chairman says

Global warming is driving humanity toward a whole new level of many risks, a United Nations scientific panel reports, warning that the wild climate ride has only just begun.

"Nobody on this planet is going to be untouched by the impacts of climate change," Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change chairman Rajendra Pachauri said in a Monday news conference.

Twenty-first century disasters such as killer heat waves in Europe, wildfires in the United States, droughts in Australia and deadly flooding in Mozambique, Thailand and Pakistan highlight how vulnerable humanity is to extreme weather, says a massive new report from a Nobel Prize-winning group of scientists released early Monday.

2. ...and the Republicons, Inc. are doing all they can to make it WORSE

The Republicons (R) are the Latter Day Spawn of Cain (R), as depicted in the film Noah -- doing all they can to destroy the planet out of greed, ignorance and hate.

8. This is why the Repubbies HATE the film Noah

It makes it clear that it was Republicon-style values that (at least in the Bible tale) brought on the Wrath of Jehovah !

The Repubbies are squirming now because their own Bible story makes it plain that the Republicons themselves are the EeeeeeVille DooooooDoooooers (R) as they lie about the Grievous Harm they do to the planet we all depend upon for survival.

4. There may be a silver lining in that I believe this will be the death knell of the GOP.

 

Okay, that's not enough, is it?

5. What will we tell our children and grandchildren?

Within 10 years all plausible deniability will be over. Facts on the ground will overwhelm denial.

6. What they didnt say it that the 1% will insure that they are impacted the least,

 

therefore the 99% will take the brunt of the impact.
